Post 97-01 XJ Fog Lamps

I am in the market for the fog lamps themselves and possibly the switch for them... I only want a good working set. As of right now I am only looking to buy a USED OEM (Chrysler Part!) setup or a NEW Aftermarket one...

I recently did the 97+ conversion to one of my MJ's and I would like to add these to it.

I'm in no rush, the truck is 8 hours away from me right now, won't see it again until late Dec.

The OEM switch will fail. Known problem on XJ's. The bulb inside the switch burns too hot and the metal inside the switch warps, thus failing to make contact. (Per Jesus .)

Changing out the bulb to that of a different color (like the Rear Window/Mirror Defrost) apparently works.

Never had this problem on any of mine; switch was possibly updated since Jesus was complaining about it. I talked about this with him before.

Mine worked for a rather long time since I didn't use it much, but it eventually did fail.

Just checking to be sure, - they are a Chrysler part? If so I am interested - I know I'm picky, I just don't want any Chinese shit.

Im interested in any and every set so long as they are Chrysler parts... The switch is not a needed item, especially if it fails all the time. If you have any pics or could describe their condition better it would help...

Awesome, Thanks!


Just for kicks, here is the truck... fog lights would round out the package nicely I think.
